Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2017 Kia Optima

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Optima Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2017 Kia Optima’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Optima’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Kia, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Optima’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Optima

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2017 Kia Optima. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Optima. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Optima. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Optima: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2017 Kia Optimas

  • Will it hurt my Kia Optima to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Optima? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Kia Optima engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
